With 11 wickets in the bag already in the series -- seven in the first Test in Delhi and four so far in the ongoing second Test here -- left arm spinner Progyan Ojha is fully focused on the job ahead.

On fire: Pragyan Ojha

And yesterday, at the media briefing following the third day's play, he made his intentions very clear. "The wicket was spinning a lot.

Yesterday, the light was too bad, so we thought of going with the spin rather than a pace attack and I thank (India skipper Mahendra Singh) Dhoni for the confidence he has shown in (off spinner) R Ashwin and me.

There was quite a bit of turn today and hopefully we should get some more tomorrow as well," said Ojha. As for Team India's position in the match, Ojha believed it's only a matter of time before the hosts clinch the second Test and take a 2-0 lead in the series.

"Right now we are in the driver's seat and things are going pretty well. Our guys are bowling superbly. We are confident of getting them out early tomorrow," he said.

Ojha said he and off spinner Ashwin were enjoying themselves out in the middle. "It's great to have Ashwin alongside. We complement each other. I hope we carry on this partnership and get a lot of wickets for India," he said.
